Sue Ryder Celebrate a Life Gloucestershire (previously Lights of Love) is an opportunity to come together with family, friends and the local community, to celebrate and remember someone special.

Remember and reflect upon the lives of loved ones

We warmly invite you to join us for our annual Sue Ryder Celebrate a Life Gloucestershire event this December.

The event is an opportunity to remember and reflect upon special memories of loved ones. It is a chance to give thanks, leave a dedication in memory and celebrate the lives of people who have died that mean so much to us.

Celebrate a Life is open to anyone who wishes to commemorate a loved one, regardless of when they died and if they were a patient of Sue Ryder.

Celebrate a life with family and friends

The event will consist of live music from a gospel choir, along with special readings, personal stories and moments of reflection. There will also be an opportunity to leave a personal, handwritten dedication to your loved one on our memory wall for everyone to see, or add their name to our dedication screen in advance via our registration form.

If you wish to write your handwritten dedication in advance please email us at

You will be able to chat to others and share precious memories, as well as find out about our bereavement support and Grief Kind Spaces.

Refreshments will be provided for all attendees.

Please arrive from 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start.

There is no cost for this event. Register today to join us, as there are limited spaces available.

Caring for families across the country

Last year over 8,100 people were cared for by Sue Ryder in our hospices or in their own homes, including from our Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice.

At Sue Ryder, we offer a range of free bereavement services that can help you live with loss.
